Teach Parents Tech - A Good Way to Send Tech Help

Almost all of us have people in our lives that need help navigating their computers and or the Internet. Teach Parents Tech is a free service from Google that can help you help those people in your life that need some tech guidance.

To send tech support through Teach Parents Tech simply specify a recipient, choose the type of help that your recipient needs, and enter your recipient's email address. Your recipient will receive a set of videos designed to help them with the tasks that are troubling them. As the sender, you can preview the videos before they are sent.

Applications for Education
Teach Parents Tech is obviously designed for children to help their parents, but it could be used to help your colleagues down the hall too. You can customize your message so that it isn't addressed to mom or dad and is instead addressed to a first name. Even if you don't use the email template provided by Teach Parents Tech, you may find the site to be helpful in finding tutorial videos to embed in your blog or website.

Send Tech Support Care Packages

Yesterday, Google launched a site designed to help you help your family with their tech questions. Through Teach Parents Tech you can send your mother, father, or other family member an email containing videos teaching them how to do things like copy and paste, change screen savers, create passwords, create email signatures, crop images, and get directions. As you might expect, the videos direct viewers to Google products but they're still useful. To send one of these "care packages" just fill out the form on Teach Parents Tech.


Applications for Education
While Teach Parents Tech was designed with helping your parents in mind, it could also be handy for those of us who often receive requests for help with the types of things addressed by the videos on Teach Parents Tech.
